Microsoft has been exceedingly keen in promoting Azure, its cloud service, to the wider business world. Aware that the future is shifting, Azure is intended to become an increasingly large part of the company’s main revenue stream.

And according to a new report from cloud storage provider Nasuni, as reported by Forbes, Microsoft is doing particularly well in this field. The company marked Azure as faster and more reliable than its rivals, including Amazon Web Services and Google’s various offerings.
